Thank you for beliveing in me.......

To all those lovely people who sent emails and PM's convincing me I should enter the Design Team Competition at Diva's - thank you for believing in me! You all know who you are.

I am thrilled to announce that I am the Guest Designer for DIVA'S for the month of May and June. I would like to thank Michelle and the girls for having me as part of the team. Michelle is going to keep me very busy, with lots of things to design. I am so thankful for this opportunity.

It has been a few scrappy weekend. With Diva's holding their monthly cybercrop (CC). I had to work very quickly and make my sample pages, after finding out what the girls challenges were about lunch time on Friday.

Vicky's Challenge:
Use blue, A song title and a page from a book
Here is my sample page.

Rach's challenge:
Use a CD to make an off the page project.
Here is my sample

Community Challenge:
Black and White, music notes and paint.
Here is my page

Sunday Speed Scrapping:
You have 1 hours to complete a layout. I used this to cover two challenges. I am still doing my daily pages for 3AS. I have scrapped at least one layout everyday for the month of April. I am almost there. Some days this challenge has been hard, but it has also been lots of fun. So here is my page for Speed scrapping and 27th April challenge, to use buttons

Tonight Rach is holding a free online class at Diva's would love to see you come and play.

In other news:

It has turned bitterly cold. Wind, showers and I'm remembering what Winter was like. Our air con has had, heart failure and frozen up several times already. We have to turn it off, for several hours.....yes that means no HEATING while it's FREEZING! Luckily the nice man rang this morning to tell me, they will be installing our wood fire on Wednesday. I really wanted to beg him, to come today.

Chris has been busy preparing more veggie gardens. He has broccoli, cauliflowers, onions, garlic, potatoes and beans all growing now. It will be the last of the zucchinis and tomatoes as they hate frost. We had frost twice in the last week.

Chris is also obsessed with the "Footy tipping comp" at the moment. It is very serious. He is now 1st at work. He is most impressed with himself.

The chooks are slowly starting to get along. Kayla's chook is the 'nasty girl' They are still having to be separated, in the evening. They seem to be ok, while out during the day.

Kayla and Zac have a pupil free day today. Kloe was the only one who went to school. She didn't like the fact that they were staying home. She brightened up when I told her she could have a lunch order (which she hasn't had this year) bribery always works LOL!

I also had another page accepted by Scrapbook Creations, late last week. Another page of Jarred titled "Mischief, me?". That makes acceptances and publications in all three Aussie Mags, so I am pretty happy with that. (Hey Dad....are you counting?? LOL)

Otherwise we are all good and healthy (touch wood)

Enjoy your week. Mine is going to be busy!

You are a VERY deserved winner of the spot Mel.
And how good is it that you've had LO's published in all 3 aussie scrap mags. That's a great achievment. Looking forward to seeing all your DT stuff at Divas and your class. I'll be there with bells on.
I might enter the next round, what do you think?
Can you send your DH up here to do my veggie gardens? I'm hopeless.

Well done Floss I though it was good when I go one of the cars in a Magazine. Now you have been published in all three just fantastic, I know how excited you must be after watching you when I was there.

No I have not been counting how many times you have had your work published, should I?
